Antarctica – a world very few have ever experienced. Those who come aboard our Antarctic cruises get to explore one of the last true untouched wildernesses on the planet.
Antarctica is a collection of extremes – on average it is the windiest, driest, coldest, and highest elevated of all the continents. Only about 200 mm of precipitation falls along the coastline each year, with the inland areas being even drier. Despite the harsh nature of the continent, Antarctic cruise voyagers are treated to some spectacular scenery. It’s a land of dark rugged rocky peaks contrasting with the white snow and the passing of bright icebergs across dark waters.
Take a Zodiac ride amongst the blue and white icebergs that tower above the water, kayak alongside curious whales, pay respects to a curious penguin, dive into a new world under the ice, camp under the Polar sky, or climb to a rugged vista for an amazing view.
